Born To Paint.

Hi,

.

WOW, it is cold up here this morning.

All of the windows were iced up when I rose from my bed at 7am, and there was a very wintry scene outside, with all of the nearby house roofs gleaming with frost.

I expect that all of the crows are feeling very chilled and sorry for themselves.

.

Never mind, this morning they will receive the prawn crackers that were left from a weekend Chinese takeaway ( their great greasy favourite) and the  crusts that Big H cut off from my toast this morning.

When I first got up, I went to make myself some tasty toast and Marmite, along with a big cup of Lapsang, but I was disappointed to discover that there were only crusts of bread remaining….and the Marmite was totally finished.

.

Luckily Big H arises by about 8.30, because of his medication, so he quickly went to the Spar and bought the necessary items, before making me my desired breakfast.

Mmmmmmm.

.

Obviously, because it was so bitterly cold last night, it is not surprising that there is no cloud cover this morning, and the sky is a brilliant icy blue.

There is also total sunshine which makes everything look truly beautiful.

.

I have got some new canvases now, because my husband felt better last week and stretched and framed some ready for me to get some new work done.

That is my plan for the day, especially with this wonderful light, after so many dark weeks.

So, there is much pleasure ahead!

.

Talking about art, have you heard about one of our youngest established artists?

One who is nine years of age….and who is called Kieron Williamson.

.

He was found to be different from most other children when he was about 5….and first picked up a paintbrush.

.

This is a video about him which was recorded when he was 6, and had just taken up painting on his last summer holidays.

Here is some work, posted 2 years ago.

.
Here he is 8 years of age.

.

Now, at the ripe old age of 9, he is now getting ready for a new show at the PictureHouse Gallery in Norfolk.

It is due to take place very soon, and will probably be another quick sell-out just like the last showing was.

.

If you fancy queueing overnight, as has been done previously, then you can expect the range of prices to reach up to £16,000 for some works.

.

Howzat for a little fellow!!!
